Cranberry Season calls for ……….Cranberry Sauce/Salsa de Arandanos

November is here and with that comes Cranberry Season.

Of course I love my Cranberry Juice with a splash of vodka or should I say my vodka with a splash of cranberry juice, but making fresh cranberry sauce totally gives me the cozy feeling of the holidays season!


Earlier on today I bought a bag of Cranberries just because they were there, which then of course turned into a delightful Cranberry Sauce! Salsa de Arandanos for my Spanish speaking peeps!

Cranberry Sauce basic recipe:

  • 1lb cranberries
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1/3 cup of water

Bring above ingredients to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and add the rest of the ingredients except for the orange. Simmer for apron 5-7 mins.


  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 tsp all spice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

Add orange at the end

  • grated rind and juice of an orange


I started making my sauce and realized I had no oranges, so I debated between adding Lemon instead, Port Wine or Marsala Wine and the Marsala Wine won!

So instead of using the orange I added about 1/4 cup of Marsala Wine and oh my, it turned out so yummy.
